    Cons: nothing

    Pros: high sharpness, high contrast, nice bokeh, stopped down to f5,6 best results without CA's, one of the best lenses, Pentax ever has built

    Cons: No hood delivered, pricey. The autofocus tends to hunt especially in low-light situations.

    Pros: Decent sharpness wide open, from f/2,8 on very sharp. Great contrast already at f/1,8! Nice colors. The smooth bokeh is a pleasure. No problems with CA's. Small dimensions, lightweight ( 122 g).

    Summary: This is a nice lens, very compact and fine image quality. Nevertheless it could be a tad cheaper.

    Cons: Soft at f1,8 - 2,5, sometimes focus-hunting, noisy

    Pros: Fast, small, lightweight, sharp from f2,8 up

    Summary: A decent lens for the price, if you crave for fast prime, no need to hesitate, however it is not top-notch, it could definitely be sharper and could focus faster and more acurate.
